Kanu in a tweet claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the soldiers to kill the protesters not Sanwo-Olu.
The 81 Division of the Nigerian Army had admitted that it’s soldiers were present at the scene of the protest but did not kill anybody. The division also disclosed that they stormed Lekki toll gate on the order of Sanwo-Olu.
However, the IPOB leader described the Army’s claim as false.
“Nobody should believe @HQNigerianArmy’s claim that it was @jidesanwoolu that ordered for soldiers to be brought to #Lekki.
“It’s a brazen LIE. Since when did Governors become Army Commanders. #LekkiMassacre was ordered by the Fulanized @NGRPresident and executed by a Fulanized Army, Kanu tweeted
